Pros

Good place to learn. Time flexibility. Good infra structure.

Cons

Microsoft Brazildoesn`t have junior opportunities, so if you are an intern the best option for you after the internship is to leave the company to work elsewhere.
Microsoft Brazil is to much scorecard driven, don`t have a good long term view and don`t have many independece from Microsoft Corp.

Advice to Management

Don`t lose young talents. Improve the emplyee satisfaction and work life balance.

    Pros

    Microsoft has great benefits, pays well and provides a challenging atmosphere. The right job with the right team can be fun as well as lucrative.

    Cons

    Microsoft does not reward long term contributors the way it used to. Sacrifice your career, to do the right thing for your customer or the right thing as a professional will bite you in your review.

    Advice to Management

    Clean the pond. Go back to the things that made Microsoft a truly great company and reward those who invest their lives for your bottom line.


  2. A industry giant, which needs to refocus in order to return to true excellence

    Pros

    People - smart and passionate
    Technology - while the pc age may be over, and google/apple are leading in the consumer space, Microsoft is still a leader in enterprise space and has a promising cloud strategy
    Breadth of Product Portfolio - there is opportunity to be involved in every sector of technology market, and work with enterprise customers of all sizes and industries

    Cons

    Randomized Scorecard - too many metrics, many of which of questionable relevance, with limited ability to influence outcomes
    Review System (stack rank)

    Advice to Management

    End the stack rank review system, and focus commitments/scorecard to 1-3 items for individual contributors and 3-5 for front line managers.
